KW automotive has developed the perfect suspension for every demand, even hybrid cars and electric vehicles. Modern battery electric cars with high axle loads benefit from state-of-the-art KW shocks with multi-valve damper technology from the German market leader. KW launched in March the KW coilover suspension kit Variant 3, which is separately adjustable in compression and rebound forces, for all Model 3 with rear-wheel drive. The KW shocks and coilover suspension kits are very successful in the global premium market, because for all KW road applications like the KW Variant 3 the development setup philosophy is setup as comfortable as possible and as firm as necessary in all driving situations in everyday life.
A KW Variant 3 equipped Tesla Model 3 benefits from improved ride comfort and better handling at high speeds. Also a Model 3 with 20” wheels and low-profile tires will benefit greatly from this advanced KW technology. KW is using pre-configured high-speed valves for the compression and rebound stages in the Variant 3 dampers.
When driving over large highway transverse joints or on small country roads with bad tarmac a high-speed excitation will appear, and the preloaded valve springs will open to their maximum cross-section. A KW V3 equipped Tesla Model 3 has a harmonic damping and doesn’t rock during fast load changes, the chassis no longer loses grip on high speeds or an offset of the tires occurs. The electric vehicle now drives safely and tracks consistent in all situations with a KW coilover suspension kit.
The adjustment of the damper setting is changed by hand directly on the integrated adjusters on the shock body. With 16 clicks in the low-speed range of the rebound forces and 12 clicks in lowspeed of the compression everyone can dial their preferred setup. A setup manual is always part of the delivery, also a technical component report for the authorities in different countries.
At the front axle the approved adjustment range for the stepless lowering is from 25 – 55 millimeters. On the rear axle is a lowering between 25 and 50 millimeters.
